Pinsteps. Upper Nahal Karkur
Places to visit in Беэр-Шева. Languages: ru, en, he

This is one of the most beautiful and highest points in the region. Here the height is 450 meters above sea level and at the top you can find the mandrake root. Bedouin women come here to collect this plant. Despite the fact that we were in a jeep, there is a high rocky ledge at the top, which does not allow us to drive further. Only if you have a military hammer. Beyond this hill pass begins the path to the area of fortresses, built by Jewish kings. They fortified the southern reaches of their kingdom before the invasions of the Egyptians. But despite the fact that several fortresses were built here, the Egyptian pharaoh Sheshonok from the Libyan dynasty was able to devastate all of Judea in his lightning expedition.

Beer Sheva, Dudaim Forest, Lahavim Forest and Sternbergia flowering.

This is a weekend trip for the whole family. Negev - the desert in southern Israel is especially beautiful after the first rains. In Be'er Sheva, the story is about the old city of Turkish and English Be'er Sheva, the last steam train, a Jewish soldier and a damned mosque. After Beer Sheva, the path passes through the hills of the Goral in a jeep, however, in the area of Lahavim, you can reach the place of flowering of Sternbergia on asphalt roads.
